About our Jonette Jewelry Co. (trademarked ©JJ) animal theme collection: The now defunct Jonette Jewelry Co. was founded c1943 in Providence, Rhode Island. Founder, Abraham Lisker, named the company Providence Jewelry Co., and later when his brother join the company, renamed it, Lisker & Lisker Inc. During WWII the firm discontinued operations due to metal shortages brought about as the result of government restrictions. Abraham Lisker restarted the company after the war ended and renamed it Jonette Jewelry Co., using the names of his parents, John and Etta. Since production of these beautiful figural and novelty jewelry pieces ended in September 2006, after approximately 63 years in operation, the remaining original inventory bearing the trademark, ©JJ, are becoming more scarce, and highly collectible.
